‘Jingles’ joined the Chloorkop outfit in December 2012, taking over from the axed Johan Neeskens, and lead the club to a lowly 10th place finish in the Premiership.

The former Bafana Bafana coach has made a significant number of signings in his time at the club, and they seem to have paid off so far, with Downs sitting pretty at the top of the log after six rounds of action.

With a large squad at his disposal, Mosimane is yet to give starts to former regulars such as Esrom Nyandoro and Elias Pelembe, as well as new signings such as Tiyani Mabunda, Raymond Monama and Rodney Ramagalela, who joined the club from Black Leopards this season.

“We are yet to formalise the team, there are a lot of new players,” Mosimane says. “Today I am happy that I gave Mzikayise Mashaba a chance to play, I gave Katlego Mphela a chance to play and also [Katlego] Mashego.

“There are a lot of guys who have not yet got a chance. We are still waiting for Pelembe to be given a chance, Teko [Modise] to work hard and make it into the team.

“I am happy Ramagalela is back from injury and started to train, and Mabunda is still to get his chance to play.”

Togolese defender Emmanuel Mathias, however, will remain in limbo at the club, as the quota of five foreign players is full.

Mosimane reiterates that he is happy with the goals scored last night, but insists his team did not play good football to achieve the result.

“There is still a long way to go. We are not yet where I want to be but we will get there. I am happy with the result. Sometimes you get the smoothness but not the result but today we got result and the goals.”
